IoT and xAPI - ADL Design Cohort xAPIGnome

  1. 1. Design Cohort 3 Team 9: xAPI Gnome
  2. 2. BOUNTY: Internet Of Things “IoT is a concept that describes a future where devices, systems and services around the world are interconnected across a common network (typically the Internet) and are able to interact in ways that fundamentally enhance the way we live our lives.” - US Ignite Global Cities Challenge (2014)
  4. 4. a About that Internet Of Things… “Connectivity and devices are just enablers. The real value for users is created by making sense of the data that those devices generate. Sensors generate data, data produces knowledge, knowledge drives action.” - Schuermans & Vakulenko (2014) IoT: Breaking Free From Internet and Things - How Communities and Data will Shape the Future of IoT in Ways We Can’t Imagine
  5. 5. These Things don’t fit neatly in a SCORM box.
  6. 6. Tour a place Explore benefit package Meet actual people Attend webinar Attend a class Rate your experience Complete online course Observe something Receive coaching Watch a video Follow a blog Read a book Elearning: Welcome Elearning: Log into LMS Elearning: Plant tour Class: Your benefits & you Class: Email and You Elearning: Who’s who Elearning: Our customers Class: Finance 101 Recorded webinar Webinar Multiple choice test Participate in an activity Job shadow Class: Using the intranet Company BCompany A
  7. 7. WHAT WE LEARNED Flexibility of display rocks • Existing web tools make assembly & xAPI easy • A plan + structure = easy peasy for instructional designers • Flexibility of changing how things are displayed vs. the underlying verbs, activities, etc. • Activity statements • ADL statement viewer • Shortcuts (rapid authoring tools, templates) are convenient… but limited and inflexible
  8. 8. WHAT WE LEARNED User creation & authentication • Everyone in the pool! • Simple approach: name, email, password • Save progress • Query xAPI by email address
  9. 9. WHAT WE LEARNED Reading data from the LRS • Use callbacks: checklist items are only marked complete visually when the LRS says so • Allows us to act upon the recording of individual xAPI statements as they occur
  10. 10. WHAT WE LEARNED Sourcing our verbs • Smart: Grammar counts • Hard: There is no one source of all verbs • Then: Make up your own
  11. 11. WHAT WE LEARNED What is complete? • Completion!?!?! • We built a “Complete All” button • cmi5 “Complete” sent once all items are checked off • What if new items are added? • Checklist determines completion vs. LRS/LMS determining completion
